Ascent Trip Report

Snowshoe hike. Arrived at about 9:40 AM and were the first ones that day on the trail, and first to the summit. Lots of snow but trail compacted and a bit crusty since it rained last week and no new snow has fallen lately. This didn't cause too much trouble though, since most of the time the trail is not too steep. At higher elevations, frost had crystallized on the branches of the trees, making for a really nice effect. Cloudy, but visibility was not too bad and winds relatively calm, allowing for good enjoyment at the summit. Did just the out and back today.
